Just wondering how everyone feels on this? I know some are making more or less than others with different amounts of Hubs. A lot has to do with content and competition, etc.
Just interested in others experience with more hubs equals or doesn't equal more money (with the various Affiliates).
More hubs and frequently publishing may help your profile page and hot/latest hubs pages remain fresh and easilly accessible for search engines. That's one point I wanted to say here
I think you need to write a hub at least once a week so it builds your profile up and the more you have published the better chance of making some money. Hope that helps in some way
More hubs do = more money but some people do better with just a handfull of hubs than others do with 100s of hubs!! Its all about good content!!
I get morer visitors to one of my hubs than i do over a 100+ of my other hubs!!.
This hub has excellent hub nuggots to help you acheive more money from your hubs.
If you have good content in a niche a couple of hubs can do the trick.
and good avatar is also recommended for more fans.lol
Fans won't make you any money, because fans are Hubbers, and they don't click on ads.
Misha will tell you that Eric Graudins is right - more Hubs don't equal more money. Misha is doing better than most of us, and look how many Hubs he has! The content and the value of the clicks are far more important than the number of Hubs you have.
i think more page views means more money, and if you need to write a new one to get more traffic then i guess thats the solution
More quality hubs equals more money. Cranking out low quality hubs one after another won't help very much. If you can maintain the same quality you are already doing then doing more hubs will lead to more money.
More hubs= more money as long as the hubs are unique and competition in the niche is just right. I think it all depends on the topics though, as just a few hubs can make just as much as hundreds depending on quality and topic. It also depends on how well you market and bookmark the hubs. If you bookmark just a few hubs very well, you can make more than hundreds that aren't marketed at all.
@weblog - I've noticed some items from my profile page show up high in the SERPs before (haven't checked recently, busy hubbing).
@ compu-smart, thanks for sharing, that's exactly what I was wondering as I've noticed that the case with some of my Hubs. My higher scored hubs bring in most of my income. I will check out your HubNugget suggestion, thanks for that also.
@ Whitney - thanks. I see you and other Hubbers have quite a few Hubs & I've seen some of you reference your earnings. I was wondering, do you have a few top/key money making hubs that bring a majority of your income or would you say it's an overall effort? Seems that's the case for compu-smart, if I understand correctly.
@ Haunty - I like your way of thinking
Have any of you (with a lot of Hubs) worked on back-links or interlinking your Hubs or do you mostly just publish?
In terms of Adsense, I'm not sure, as I don't have each hub set up as a different channel. But I have noticed in terms of amazon which products people have been buying, and with ebay which hubs people are using to purchase, and to some degree there's a little trend there.
I just publish. I don't spend extra time on marketing and trying to set up backlinks. I just let them come naturally... Well, I take that back. I do post most of my links on my blogs and they're set to show on Twitter via TwitterFeed, but other than that not really.
I mentioned this in another forum. I getting tired of reading commercials. I'm happy that hubbers make money writing commercials for one product or another but it doesn't make great reading. I like to read what fellow hubbers write but this deluge of product after product is getting mind numbing. I'll be happy when this challenge over and talent people can throw in some real writing now and then.
They reciprocate each other. More clicks + more hubs = more money.
It is also worth noting that more views can result directly in slightly more money due to Adsense paid per impression ads.
I don't think more hubs = more money. That is definitely not true.
Writing hubs and analyzing their performance make it a greater chance to stumble upon a "goldmine keyword" or better say - topic. Of course it is a very good idea to push a hub findable by certain keyword to #10 in Google (preferably LiveSearch/MSN and Yahoo, too). In my opinion, this is the best way to estimate the traffic, conversion and overall earning potential of a hub/keyword/topic. The bad thing is that getting into #10 sometimes is not an easy task.
If you come across a potentially rewarding topic, just split it into sub-topics, decide on keywords (or rather keyphrases) and write hubs to your pleasure.
Quite probably an example could look like this:
water filters (general, broad topic).
Then it can be splitted: pros and cons of filtering water, filter types, performance, types by installation (on-tap, under-sink, jugs, etc), companies manufacturing water filters, etc etc. Finally, writing water filter reviews - and I don't mean copy-pasting someone's reviews. If your friends/relatives use water filtering equipment, just go and check how it all works, ask them to share their satisfaction/experience, taste the unfiltered and filtered water to see the difference (warning: sometimes tasting unfiltered water is dangerous to your health). That's a way of getting reliable, first-hand information that hub visitors will like to read. Why? Simply because I myself spent a day searching for Brita reviews
Now think logically: are there money to be made in this topic? Sure. Manufacturers and online stores DO advertise their products and services related to water filtering systems. Additionally, amazon and eBay sell water filters, so it's easy to find relative products and include them in capsules.
Basically, that's one of the approaches to money-making hubbing, and I don't think it's the worst one.
You're all missing one of the main points if you want to make money with hubs.
The difference in value of a click.
Some clicks are only worth a few cents. Others can be worth many dollars.
So a click on one hub can earn you more than hundreds of clicks on another hub.
So do your research on Google's external keyword tool when planning your hubs. (You'll have to select the option where you can see the Cost per click for each keyword)You won't be paid the amount show, but the info is useful to determine the relative value of search terms.
Note: In the hubs I've published (and subsequently removed) I didn't use any monetary values. But I'll try publishing some hubs soon using the info I've mentioned above, and see how they go.
Actually I am not exactly with Eric. I never even bothered to check the cost of click for my keywords. I try to rank for those that have enough traffic and relatively easy to rank for, that's it

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

I haven't seen traffic improvement at all after adding more hubs. With few of the new ones actually have nice traffic, and the newest with more fake traffic of my own, yet the overall traffic often has decreased, or stay the same, wondering why. This is discouraging

Does creating more hubs really work and increase you adsense revenue? I have been promoting the heck out of my ten hubs and only made 20 cents.

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...

I have done everything I have been told to do. But I must be doing something wrong cause I am not making any money. I have people checking out my hubs but it is not doing anything for me when it comes to making money. What else do I need to do?
